Our guest house is a renovated pony barn in the side yard of Hilltop Acres Bed & Breakfast and overlooks the scenic Bideford (formerly Goodwood) River.

We are just 600 yds. from the Designated Heritage Bideford Parsonage Museum where famed Canadian author L.M. Montgomery lived during her first year of teaching school. Each week during July and August, there is 'Wednesday Evening with L.M. Montgomery' held at the Museum with guest readers and speakers.

The PEI Shellfish Museum and Green Park Shipbuilding Museum and Historic Yeo House are just minutes away.

Thursday night is Trivia at the Landing Oyster Bar and Pub in Tyne Valley, our neighbouring community. The Tyne Vally Oyster Festival is held each year on the first weekend of August, with delicious Oyster suppers served on Friday afternoon and evening (please check for the exact dates of the Festival). Last summer, the Tyne Valley Tea and Company opened in Tyne Valley with luncheon offerings and local art and crafts for sale.

Next door in Tyne Valley is Dillon's Convenience, where you can purchase pizzas, groceries, rent videos or sit down and have lunch in their cafe. At the rear of the building is a hairdressing shop.

We are just minutes from Green Gable Alpaca Farm where you can see the animals in their paddocks and purchase quality alpaca products in their Gift Shop.

You are also just minutes from the Arlington Orchards, where they host the Shriners Scarecrow Festival in support of Shriners Sick Kids Hospital. This is an annual event held the last Sunday in September. From mid August until mid October, you may pick your own fruit fresh from their trees.

You may watch as local fishers tong for oysters in the waters of the area, and you can purchase oysters fresh from Malpaque Bay at Leslie Hardy & Sons Oyster Grading and Packing plant in East Bideford.

Also, you are within 20 minutes drive to Island Traditions Store where you can watch the workers weaving with wood, to create beautiful baskets of various shapes and sizes for any purpose.

As you can see, there is lots to see and do in this area of our beautiful province!
